Neuro Doctor :

There are many other options for controlling joint pain

Neuro Doctor :

First let me ask this, what other meds have you tried?

Customer:

morphine demerol atavan

Neuro Doctor :

Okay I see

Neuro Doctor :

You haven't tried nerve pain pills like Gabapentin, Pregabalin, Duloxetine etc for pain control, agree?

Customer:

no

Neuro Doctor :

Okay, nerve-pain pills like Gabapentin, or Pregabalin, or Duloxetine, or Amitriptyline can also help with severe joint pain, so this is one option

Neuro Doctor :

these are quite effective for pain control

Neuro Doctor :

They should not induce annoying system overdrive, sleep problems etc

Neuro Doctor :

Are you considering them?

Neuro Doctor :

Do you want to learn more options too?

Customer:

yes what ever works

Neuro Doctor :

Okay sure I will provide some more options

Neuro Doctor :

I am typing them I will post them here soon

Neuro Doctor :

just one sake, almost done

Neuro Doctor :

One of these pain relieving patches or creams from the below list can also help considerably;


 


Lidocaine anesthetic pain relieving skin patches - to apply over the painful joint


 


Flector nonsteroidal pain relieving skin patches - to apply over the painful joint


 


Capsaicin pain relieving skin cream - to apply over the painful joint


 


Voltaren pain relieving skin cream - to apply over the painful joint

Neuro Doctor :

A course of oral steroid like Prednisolone too can help in relieving this severe pain

Neuro Doctor :

And none of the above should cause the side effects you are concerned

Customer:

thank you

Neuro Doctor :

You are very welcome!

Neuro Doctor :

I hope they help you significantly!

Neuro Doctor :

Do you have any further questions?
